The 1928 Palladium Theater, witnesses say, is haunted by something that creates disembodied footsteps and a floating orb the size of a soccer ball. Even more eerie, rumor has it that dead bodies were discovered in a dressing room a couple decades ago. The site has been featured on an episode of TV’s Ghost Hunters.

  1. I was there to be a corner man for a fight years ago and was in the dressing room area waiting and watching the fights contact me though email for details

  2. I used to work there when it first opened again as the Pallidium back in 98-99? I was one of the only daytime people, and spent many afternoons asleep on the couch in the 3rd floor dressing room. Ive also been in every inch of that building. Nothing not even 1 ghost sighting.

  3. the last time i was there a friend of mine worked there he let me in because it was raining that day and i was walking but as the day went by i saw an apparition on the second floor stage but i paied it no mind but when i accidentally spent the night there i had things thrown at me and had faint voices telling me to leave but that was a few years ago oh and by the way ghosts tend to start coming out during the night because of the night having more energy for them to appear
